Default Am I a JERK for wanting to upgrade from TOUR to STORM 2?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got the TOUR in July....but I saw and played with the STORM 2 (yes, I owned a STORM 1 and did not hate it) and now I want to upgrade...

But the TOUR is only 3 1/2 months old!

All kidding aside, you should get a good price for a newer Tour on Ebay.Then you can pay off the new Storm 2 with the proceeds.
I have sold all my old Blackberry devices on Ebay, and usually make enough to pay for most of the new one.

I do this kind of thing all the time. I ported from AT&T to Sprint to get the Palm Pre. Love it, but after about 2 or 3 weeks I found I just missed my BlackBerry too much. So I bought a Curve 8330m. About 2 weeks after that Sprint released the Tour. So I bought it and re-sold my Curve. It's been a pattern with me and mobile phones for many years. So much so I no longer even try to justify my purchased. I just do it.

The Storm 2 looks pretty cool. Wish they would release it on ATT. Cant stand Verizon.

I wouldn't say "jerk". Sounds pretty typical, really. It's your money to part with...
